Broiled Beet Slices with Maple-Teriyaki Glaze

From Farmer John’s Cookbook


12 small or 6 medium beets, scrubbed and trimmed             

¼ cup butter

2 TBSP maple syrup

1 TBSP minced garlic                                      

1 TBSP finely chopped or grated

1 TBSP soy sauce or tamari                                  

fresh ginger


Preheat oven to 400.  Place beets in a small roasting pan with ½ cup water.  Cover with foil and bake 45 minutes to 1 hour, until beets are easily pierced with a knife.

Preheat the broiler.  Allow beets to cool slightly then run under cold water and slip off skins.  Slice into ¼ inch rounds.  Melt the butter in a small pan over medium heat.  Stir in the maple syrup, garlic, ginger, and soy sauce or tamari.  When ingredients are thoroughly blended, remove from heat.  Put the beets in shallow baking dish and pour the maple syrup over them.  Broil, stirring occasionally for 5 to 10 minutes.
